If you’re a big lace knitter, you might want to check out the Year of Lace (click the image at right) from Amy Swenson & co. at Make 1 Yarn Studio What is the Year of Lace?
The Year of Lace is a subscription lace knitting club. Every three months, a package containing luxury yarn and an original pattern by leading designers will arrive at your door.
Among the designers is your favorite and mine: Sivia Harding. Sivia just finished an amazing lace shawl for my next book and I can’t wait for it to get here! And if Amy’s running the club, you just know the Year of Lace is going to be awesome.
Speaking of Amy, have you seen her new book Sensual Crochet yet?
If you haven’t already taken the Knitgrrl survey, you have four more days left! One lucky winner will receive a membership to one of my 2008 yarn / pattern clubs.
Another club note: I just got my first Cuckoo for Cuckoobatts Batt of the Month Club shipment from Nikol — it’s awesome! She sent me one of her infamous datebooks, too! (Hurrah!) Gosh, I sure am using a lot! of! exclamation! marks! Don’t mind me, it’s the caffeine. Here’s Nikol’s Ãœberlist for 2008. I still have to write mine into the datebook, so I’ll get back to you on that, but writing up a lot of patterns is definitely in the cards.
